. meaning those swing women already know where romney, ryan are on abortion and where obama-biden are on abortion to a large degree. they're waiting to hear and more importantly to see something outside of that issue. and let's just see, does anybody ever talk about men's issues. what are these women's issues. all issues are men's issues. i want to put out that i think all issues should be women's issues. >> brown: that si a fair point. i always think about asking as a general question. but pollster was do look, let me go back to you on this question, because the polls, recent polls in particular show that governor romney closed what had been a very large gap, especially among women voters just in the last week. so what do you think's going on there and what do you think are the issues driving that? >> well there are two things going on. first of all we need to remember that, and kellyanne said it as well, women voters didn't like mitt romney, at all. by 20 points they personally disliked him going into that first debate. they saw an mitt romney that was very different than what t

[ applause ] but you know anyone who w
, this is why. >> you know the phrase you always use, obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, guess what? yes, we do in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all of that money going to the super wealthy. >> so, are promises of massive tax hikes, taxing the jobs market? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears, here they are, bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, tobin smith, jonas max ferris, along with julian epstein and larry, talk about future tax hikes, holding back a jobs recovery? >> that's right, that's right, brenda. well, you know, certainly for consumers that are work being that have 401(k) plans they may be feeling more confident these days, but their employers don't share the optimism. they're worried what's ahead and what's ahead are future tax increases, for small business owners still, these are people that own delis and dry cleaners and pave your driveways, not fat cats and million fairs and billionaires, they're average work people and concerned about the envir
is predicting joe biden will, quote, make mince meat of congressman paul ryan. something even president obama admits he did not do in his own debate with governor mitt romney last week. the governor has been gaining ground in the polls ever since. new faye from three key swing states from the "wall street journal" and nbc news. "wall street journal," the parent company of this network, or owned by the parent company. it shows governor romney closing the gap in virginia and ohio, with the president hanging on in florida. less than an hour ago, the tampa bay times and herald newspapers released a poll from florida. it shows governor remain knee opening up a decisive seven-point lead in that poll, which is outside the margin of error. the vice president and congressman ryan say they've been studying and practicing for this. they've dropped a few hints about what we can all expect tonight. >> the thing about congressman ryan is he's been straightforward up to now about everything he has -- all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamentally different view on a whole range of iss
president biden for the reasons that you just mentioned, is president-elect obama going to come out and be aggressive. they need to do something to change the narrative that came out of the presidential debate last week. i expect him to come out and try and do that this evening. >> shep: we got mighty good housing numbers. the conventional wisdom is that if the news is good, the sitting candidate, the one who is already in office, has the edge on those matters. how do you attack that? >> i think we all hope for good news. we all hope the economy starts coming back around, that people get back to work. if you look at second quarter growth numbers this last year, those have been adjusted downward to 1.3%. you still have fuel prices of more than doubled since the president took office, health insurance costs are up 29%, college tuition up 25%. as i said earlier, incomes are down. and so we've got serious economic problems in this country that need to be addressed that aren't being addressed. we need to change the direction of the country. that's what a romney-ryan ticket will do is a d
the obama-biden team. most believe that the romney candidacy surged after that last week's performance. that's a lot. vice president biden's job is to eat away at that bounce. but the expectations are so low for paul ryan. people aren't expecting a lot. bottom line, given their contrast in character and in values, the outcome very much in doubt. put it together, biden and ryan should put on quite a show. >> and that's a show we'll be carrying here for you and we'll have comments after. thank you very much, larry. >>> still to come at 6:00, sentencing day for jerry sandusky. ha he said in court today. >>> plus, losing our religion. interesting new research on faith in america. >>> the potential health benefits for a diet rich in tomatoes. >>> and a carcinogen has been seeping under the south bay for decades. the investigation is up next. measures... measure up. money to our schools. "misleading." out here. it. but there's hope. straight to our schools... keeps it there. politicians. yes on thirty-eight. >>> well, there's no question about it. it's an eye opening discovery. it's nona rural for
of obama and biden. what you will see tonight is along with the rhetoric, what you will see as a result of that was the mainstream media posse tomorrow morning will probably want to give a quota and " win -- "win" to joe biden. kill biden is passionate about the wrong things. -- joe biden is passionate about the wrong things. paul ryan was pulled together. what he was trying to explain was that the republican platform is build on this notion of an powering the individual, small businesses, the middle class, the average, everyday americans. they are looked -- not looking for government to take the flukes -- the fruits of our labor and redistribute it. >> some spin and reaction from fox news. -- matt miller on our facebook page -- what did you think tonight, tom? independent mind. caller: i thought vice president biden spent a lot more time on democratic talking points than he did on actual solutions and issues. i thought he came off as smirking, snarky, and i really thought mr. ryan thought -- came across as more genuine. >> thank you for the call. the campaign continues tomorrow for joe
is president obama's record. >> joe biden has passion. paul ryan relies on power points. he'd better have specifics or he will likely be called out. joe biden will rely on foreign policy experience. he has been known to be gaffe prone. >> he made that all remark about the chains. >> what you see is what you get with the vice president. we think that is a real asset. and you trust them. you know that he is being honest. is there an advantage? republicans say of course. >> joe biden has been doing this since the 1800's. >> tonight, joe biden will make mincemeat of paul ryan. >> keep in mind, either way this is their first and only debate. there is no second chance. >> you can watch the vice- presidential debate right here on abc 7. coverage begins at 9:00. we invite you to log on to wjla.com/reaact from a smart phone or tablet. >> of family just 26 -- the race for president is tightening. mitt romney and president obama are hitting the battleground states. many of the key states are up for grabs. according to the new university survey, governor romney now leads in colorado, but still traili
obama in debate number two, he can still keep it cool and classy while letting biden go all the way off the leash. but even before the first presidential debate, the match-up between the two guys on the bottom of the tickets promise to be a must-watched event. what we saw in the debate between president obama and governor romney was an exchange of ideas. both share a practical approach to stimulating economic growth but have different ways of getting us there. the two guys that we're going to be watching on thursday, pragmatism doesn't begin to describe them. pugilistic, not pragmatic describes these guys. get ready for a clash of the i had i can't logs. they're champions of the sweet science of political and economic thought of their respective parties. the golden boy of the economic doctrine. ryan the self-described -- the architect of the conservative platform, upon which the gop now stands. the plan to slash the deficit by gutting social programs and his party is saying he built that. in the other corner, a granddaddy of the base. 29 years old, joe biden became one of the youngest p
? biden: well, gwen, two years ago barack obama warned about the subprime mortgage crisis. john mccain said shortly after that in december he was surprised there was a subprime mortgage problem. john mccain while barack obama was warning about whatly givingn interview to "the wall street journal" saying that i'm always for cutting regulations. we let wall street run wild. john mccain, and he's a good man, but john mccain thought that the answer is that tried and true republican response, deregulate, deregulate. so what you had is you had overwhelming, quote, deregulation. you had, actually, the belief that wall street could self-regulate itself. and and while barack obama was talking about reinstating those regulations, john on 20 different occasions in the previous year and a half called for more deregulation. matter of fact, john recently wrote an article in a major magazine saying that he wants to do for the health care industry, deregulate it and let the free market move like he did for the banking industry. so deregulation was the promise, and guess what? those people who woul
that the obama/biden ticket is not. >> well, you made a point that i like to make. we can argue about a lot of issues as i said. there were a lot of issues debated last night like benghazi which are vitally important but not exactly a voting issue. a voting issue is an issue like gun rights to some people who are hunters or sportsmen. they will vote on that issue alone. many women are watching very carefully what these male politicians are saying about their rights and that's how they vote sometimes. >> well, indeed, and as well they should. it's tempting to say that, well, paul ryan might be the extremist here, mitt romney, he's the reasonable guy and he's at the head of the ticket. that's exactly what paul ryan is saying now. well, it's romney's ticket so -- >> depends which day of the week. >> yeah, exactly. but actually mitt romney is not so moderate himself. if you look back at his record, which is really one long series of equivocations and calibrations on the subject of abortion, you realize that he doesn't really have any strong personal feelings himself or doesn't seem to. when he
? >> andrea: yeah. >> dana: would vit been a base debate if obama had done better week before? because biden is trying to get out of the deficit that obama created in the first -- >> bob: that's exactly right. >> dana: biden had a different job last night. actually paul ryan's job was to appeal to seniors and to women. i think he nailed that. and so, whereas some of the other lines he might not have won the point, actually overall he won overall with his base, too. >> andrea: if the strategy is to rally the base, the base is women. the democratic base. war on women. they went in to this, pew research found that 51% of voters already had an unfavorable view of the vice president. he did himself no favors. >> eric: that is an important poll. i bet that number goes up after that. he was not likable. everything he did, the smilin smiling, smugness, he cut off paul ryan 82 times in 90 minutes. that is almost impossible to do. the other thing is "wall street journal" points this out. he was on the attack. they call it bully versus the wonk. he was on the attack. meaning joe biden, all night. every
martha raddtz shifted from foreign policy to the economy biden nailed nearly every attack line team obama has used this cycle. >> we moved in help and people refinance their homes, governor romney said no let foreclosures hit the bottom. but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their lives. my friend recently in a speech in washington said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> even when biden wasn't on his campaign talking points he was using his very own special brand of biden-ooez to tug the rug out from under paul ryan's feet. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look here's the deal -- >> what does that mean. >> we irish call it mularkey. >> the greatest hope for republicans was a gaffe but biden managed to take his weakness and redirect it towards governor romney. >> romney is a good man, he cares about 100% of americans in this country. with respect to that q
. there is no question that the obama campaign folks, every time joe biden is out there, partners about how it will come out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning him up. >> what do you think? vice-presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens that joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along very well. there were debt negotiations with those two were the ones that had the best rapport of all the participants. i think it will be a fun and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him and barack obama in the debate. >> i hope it is an existing debate. there were 50 million people watching the first debate. the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play. this is unbelievably boring. if i did not have to do this for a living, i would watch a show that i wanted to. >> it depends on your perspective. i found it fascinating. i was seized. my attention did not lapse for an hour-and-a-half. i think he might be slightly skewed. if
as biden's worst moment, and i don't know if joe biden personally knew about barack obama, and there had been a hearing the previous day which was very clear that the state department knew and it is not clear what joe biden talked about there and you see ryan and that was the one moment where it seemed to me that was unclear with the statement. a amy, was that fair to jump all over this that anybody who brings a gun to a building to a building and could be called a terrorist, and it was whether it was a terroristic event and whether the semantics were lost in the debate. how do you feel about it? >> i think joe biden was trying to push back on what has been a difficult month on this issue for the administration and as ben pointed out this has been covered thoroughly by your network about what the administration knew. we knew that the state bpt knew in real time that there weren't protests going in front of the building in benghazi. i want to get back to the debate and i have to tell you i have to congratulate our viewers for sitting through those 90 uncomfortable minutes of joe biden'san
that president obama was not last week was on display in joe biden's attacks tonight. biden interjected. he interrupted paul ryan several times appearing to knock the congressman off his message. you'll see this in this exchange we're about to show you. they're talking about republican proposals to cut spending while refusing to raise new revenue. the vice president saying that numbers do not add up and then jumping in as paul ryan tried to respond. >> it's not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> it has never been done. >> it's been done a couple of times. >> it has never been done before. >> ronald reagan and jack kennedy -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> the vice president almost got dismissive when he tried to question the administration's business in afghanistan. >> at times joe biden used answers like marlakey over answers paul ryan gave. the romney/ryan ticket has been saying the united states has been pulling too many troops out of afghanistan leave doing small of force to defend itself in the easte

. didn't get the medicare. but the chief biden-obama vulnerability is still tlk, the lack of a positive agenda. so you saw both vulnerabilities. >> that is what i wanted to ask both of you. if you think one or the other got the better of more arguments or less or it was a draw? i mean how did you see it on the just the sum total of the arguments that they were making? >>. >> probably belying my own biaseses with. >> woodruff: that is why we have you here. >> and mr. bias, i thought biden, i thought biden had a bigger task to perform tonight and i thought he did it. ryan's job was certainly not to lose momentum from last week and i think what was fascinating to me was that biden when asked of romney a lot more ferrociously and aggressively than ryan went after president obama, until the very end. >> woodruff: . >> ifill: in the foreign policy section, on which there was a lot. he did say more than once it was devastating shall and the unraveling of u.s. foreign policy. so he yearly was going after the obama administration policy when it came to foreign policy. >> but in a sense did was p
romney-ryan tech set about? >> absolutely. joe biden foras asplasid as obama was the other night, biden will be as tough. he's going to throw out red meat and go after ryan on his stance on abortion, women's issues. he's going to hit the social issues and it's going to be about foreign policy, which ryan has very, very limited experience. >> and medicare. i imagine he will try to deliver what obama didn't, the message that, in their opinion, the republicans are going to mess with medicare, right? >> by the end of the debate, the the world will assume that paul rysunis spending the $716 million of medicare money. it won't continue to be obama and biden will make sure that happens. >> but he has a propensity for putting his foot in his mouth? >> that is what makes it great television. you don't know what is going to happen or he's going to say. >> great television. okay. [ laughter ] this is civics, okay in. >> for political views, it's great television. >> and this is such an incredible contrast in age. >> yeah. >> ryan looks like he's 25 and biden looks like he's three times 25. so, it'
for obama. democrats say a lot of riding on tonight and that joe biden came through. with president barack obama's lackluster performance in the last debate supporters were hoping the veteran biden would show energy and passion and in the process regain momentum from the republicans. they say he did. >> we're lacking for vice president joe biden to show his experience when talk to be representative ryan. vice president biden has done this before. hopefully he is not afraid to be fies ehopefully he can really get to the main talking points and show the people where we think the country is headed the next four years. >> he's clear. he's articulate. paul ryan, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have his facts together. he's been there, sew knows the behind the scenes, so he's really sort of giving us flow by flow what's been going on for the last four years. >> democrat say vice president joe biden needed to avoid any gaffes and paint ryan as the face of the conservative wing of the republican party and who supports severe spending cut, changes to medicare and they lack foreign policy experie
appreciate it. >>> up next on "kudlow," paul ryan gears up for another knockout punch to the obama/biden team. we're going to have our tax and tactics smackdown. art laffer and jared bernstein. >>> and later in the show, a story that makes my blood boil. one month since the september 11th ambassador attack that is killed our ambassador in benghazi, house republicans grilled the obama administration today. and you won't believe what really happened. a lot of news has broken. >>> and don't forget, worldwide, i'm talking worldwide but especially in the usa, free market capitalism, always the beth path to prosperity, may well be unleashed once again. and that is just totally bullish. i'm larry kudlow. we'll be right back. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this.
was definitely biden. everything they said that barack obama did wrong biden tried to make up for it. you're not going to hear anybody say that he was listless, that he was lethargic, that he lacked passion. he came on strong. came on from the start. his only weak answer was the one you pointed out where he never answered the question was there an intelligence failure, but as evening went on, i thought he got much stronger. didn't like the sort of smiling inappropriately which i think set people off, but in terms of substance, in terms of zeal, biden energized the base and he stopped maybe the conversation like whatever happened to the candidate. >> let's talk about the tone the vice president brought to this tonight. at one point calling congressman ryan's remarks marlakey, various times throwing his arms up in the air being dismissive of what the congressman had to say. as the people are asked over the next couple days how they viewed this debate, is there a danger in the tone that joe biden took tonight in his aggressiveness against congressman ryan? >> i think he didn't have any alter
know, all week that i just basically expect biden to turn in the performance that obama did not turn in. >> sure. >> do not miss the openings that obama missed going after the missing details of romney's plans, the context he didn't want to talk about the plans and seen paul ryan think of the issue of how to pay for the tax cut plan. paul ryan's been asked the time a few times and interviews on fox and you would think of as friendly territory. he said i don't know. he said i don't have enough time to get in to the numbers on this. i totally expect biden to come after ryan on that aggressively. i think the thought is, though, republicans had a long time. the ryan campaign and romney campaign knows this is coming and looking at romney's performance, it was glib, superficially appealing. he was able to dance around not providing details so i don't know exactly how they do it. i just -- i have a kind of hunch that, you know, they'll find something that paul ryan can say that will, you know, that will get around the criticism that biden's going to come in with. >> on the lowering expectation
that is about to rock the obama campaign. could this be a link? we will ask bob woodward. and then... >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by $8 trillion. guess what? yes, we do. >> sean: yes, you do. finally, a politician is telling you the truth. lich, folks. that's the vice-president. if re-elected over a trillion doctors in new taxes. you want to vote for that option? we'll check in with charles krauthammer on this busy friday edition of "hannity." mike rowe here at a ford dealer with a little q&a for fiona. tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee... affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of res? your ford dealer. i'm beginning to sense a pattern. buy four select tires, get a $60 rebate. use the ford service credit credit card, get $60 more. that's up to $120. where did you get that sweater vest? your ford dealer. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but wor
they brought joe biden in to negotiate with the republicans. so maybe obama sensed that. but i don't know -- it's worthy to investigate. >> sean: yeah. one theory i have, i want to ask you one more question about your theory. i would argue, $6 trilon in debt, very hard to explain away. i would argue that, you know when 2012 economically is worse than 2011, which was worse than 2010, unemployment in 2012, fewer jobs in this year than last year and the year before. things are trending down. obviously, that's troubling for the president in terms of trying to defend it. but back to your theory, if he was so bad that there something else going on, that could be troubling in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong. you know, bill clinton, as critical as i was during monica lewinsky, you have to hand it to him, his ability to compartmentalize, do his job, deal with impeachment was, frankly, pretty amazing, in terms of the skill level and his ability to handle that. >> steel will. the survivor. there is no question about that. it's worth looking at. but you were on with karl scproaf
medicare, but go after joe biden and president obama about foreign policy and libya and put them on the defensive, that's a good move. >> sean: and the economy. he has to go after the economy -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the economy, too-- >>> plus i. the key issue that wasn't discuss in the debate were growth, job creation and most of all, optimism in the american spirit. >> sean: wait a minute. romney said over and over again, talked about job growth. >> but it was general. he didn't get to the american spirit-- >>> he gave us -- i agree. he could have been -- yeah, i agree. they are linked together. it ties in to foreign policy as well. that's where romney needs to go. >> sean: last word, pat? you get the last word. >> look. thank you. i like that. look, the thing have you to do, you have to defeat the chicago narrative here. romney can do that. i think the most important thing, as doug said is to press the big issue, not dancing with the spiking the ball that we just heard from your previous guest. but going after what romney is talking about, particularly the big thing that
woodward. and then... >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by $8 trillion. guess what? yes, we do. >> sean: yes, you do. finally, a politician is telling you the truth. lich, folks. that's the vice-president. if re-elected over a trillion doctors in new taxes. you want to vote for that option? we'll check in with charles krauthammer on this busy friday edition of "hannity." so anyway, i've been to a lot of places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange.

. today the shoe is on the other food for obama/biden and romney/ryan. last week it was the president's team facing high expectations. this week it is paul ryan who is expected to perform well. last week the stakes were monumental for the romney team who desperately needed a strong performance to overcome weeks of mistakes, bad polls and republican hand wringing. this week it is team obama facing high stakes to stop the bleeding and quiet the lamenting of freaked out democrats who were disappointed with last week's apathetic performance. the stylistic shoe may be on the other foot as well. ryan like obama can come across as cerebral and distant. one last thing, while the pressure is on for biden, a lot is at stake for ryan too. while he is well known by inside the belt way crowd, the national audience is just getting to know ryan. his unnecessary bending of the truth sullied his reputation. this is take two for ryan to make a favorable impression and to preserve his own future regardless of whether the romney ryan ticket. this is happening in kentucky, a state known for derby, bourbon
sadism the obama campaign has to be very happy with what biden did there. i mean, i was surprised that the president didn't do it in the last debate. i think biden made a lot of strong points, i just don't know where -- did women find him likeable. the other thing, i thought about it midway through, the obama campaign may not care. i mean, they may have sent him out there to really descrive -- drive through the points. nobody's going to vote for president for whether or not they like joe biden. i would have made him more likeable. but it may have just been about scoring points about pushing through, bringing up the 47% and really driving it. >> paul ryan had the last word saying i think the vice-president knows words don't always come out the right way on that's 47%. we are getting a preview on how they may handle that. back to you in a empty. >> wonk one thing's clear, the vice-president had more energy than the president in his first debate. let's go down to "on the record with greta van susteren" in washington for what she thought. and she has what is coming up. >> i have brit
's first. but again, in that case, we think we have the facts and the issues on our side with the obama/biden team you'll get another four years like the last four years with the romney/ryan team, a real recovery with more jobs for everybody. >> now politico is reporting today that ann romney and tagg his son, one of his sons did an intervention to try to save the campaign if you will and let mitt be mitt and get the candidate to talk more about himself, talk more emotionally to give the foreign policy speech. in pushing back against some of the staff. can you help us out on that? what is the -- your perspective about it? >> i saw the story. it's a silly little story. there's no truth to it. we're focused on big things. yesterday the governor gave a speech where he talked about some of the very real foreign policy challenges facing us. he talked about building 15 ships a year so we can build up our navy. he talked about the importance of reforming our foreign assistance and linking it to positive outcomes. he talked about stopping iran's reckless pursuit for a nuclear weapon. these are the is
come in the lunch room with the clipboard and on the back of of the clipbd they had obama/biden stickers, looking for voters to get registered. >> now the response from the obama campaign. in a statement, an obama for america pox person saying, this incident represents a simple misunderstood understanding, representing a volunteer who is no longer with our organization. all of our volunteers go through a rigorous registration process. a month ago, immediately after the incident in question, the volunteer apologized to the school. as the pasco county superintendent has indicated in the press, the school has moved on from this, and so have we. next up, big bird and elmo taking the spotlight from the foreign policy in the campaign. and in 2 minutes, former governor, sarah palin taking on a new job. what is her next big project? and why would michelle obama approve? that's 2 minutes away. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bron
is ahead of president obama. >>> our partners from "u.s.a. today" will be fact checking what biden and ryan said just as they did during the presidential debate. joining me is one of the members of fact checking team paul singer. paul, good to you have here with us. we see the poll numbers 49% to 47%. this time in favor of governor romney. debates are really making a difference. the president's flat performance has changed things. what does joe biden have to do to turn things around? what does paul ryan have to do to keep things going? >> the question is whether joe biden can turn things around. the polls have moved in romney's favor. i think biden clearly wants to again make the difference between ryan and romney clear if he can, sort of separate them and say which side are you on on abortion, where are you on taxes, whose budget are we talking about, really try and nail down some of the facts that biden and obama feel were not clear enough and not made clear enough in the presidential debate. >> es that' because the president didn't -- that's because the president didn't make them clear.
with the clipboard and on the back, they had obama/biden stickers on the clipboard, you know, looking for voters to get registered. >> greta: now the response from the obama campaign, in a statement, an obama for america spokesperson saying, this incident represents a simple misunderstanding regarding a volunteer who is no longer with our organization. all our volunteers go through a rigorous and extensive training process to insure they comply with all laws, when reamingsterring voters. a month ago, immediately after the incident in question, the volunteer apologized to the school. as the pasco county school has indicated, the school has moved on from this. and so have we. >> next up, sesame street, big bird special elmo taking the spotlight. so what has the campaign come to? our political panel answers that next. and former governor and v.p. candidate sarah palin taking on a new job. what is her next big project? and why would first lady michelle obama approve? >> greta: lots of comfort food and exercise. that's alaska governor sarah palin's secret to staying fit. she wants to share her fitnes
tonight the obama administration's narrative continues to fall apart. vice president biden claimed that he and the president didn't know about the request for more security there. white house press secretary jay carney was asked about this today by fox news ed henry. you are saying from this podium that the president and vice president have never been briefed about the fact that more security was needed in benghazi you? are saying they were never in the presidential daily briefing never briefed? >> what i'm saying is that matters of security personnel are appropriately discussed and decided upon at the state department by those responsible for it. >> joining us now from new york is congressman jason chafe fete, favor you heard some blockbuster testimony this week on capitol hill. what was your reaction, first to what the vice president said last night number one that they didn't know of any security requests, number two, blaming the intelligence community for this idea that it was a spontaneous protest that got out of control? >> it was absolutely shocking for the vice president to admit o
new momentum, while the obama-biden camp is trying to win it back. that left all of the pressure on the number two's today, as the hours counted down. the candidates were sounding upbeat, ahead of their face-off at centre college in danville, kentucky. vice president joe biden departed his home state of delaware today for the debate. >> i'm looking forward to it. >> woodruff: the republican vice presidential nominee, wisconsin congressman paul ryan, arrived yesterday. >> feel good about it. >> woodruff: but the public show of confidence belied the tension, as several new national polls show ryan's running mate, governor romney, with a slight lead, though within the margin of error. that made what happens on the stage tonight, even more critical. president obama called his vice president to wish him luck today, and voiced support for his man last night, in an interview on abc news. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. >> woodruff: and mitt romney played up ryan's chances, at a wednesday event, in ohio. >> i think paul ryan will do great. >> woodruff: the debate will run 90 minute
and biden is great at this stuff. >> reporter: after obama's poor showing, many are hoping biden will pull this out. >> i'm hopeful that mr. ryan will tell the truth. >> romney's coach gave his opinion as to how the next debate will go >> we didn't go after governor romney as much so i think both men will be prepared. >> reporter: biden said he's prepared. foreign and domestic policy issues will be in place. it's the only vice presidentable debate before the election. >> you can watch the debate live thursday starting at 6:00. it's being held in dan vile kentucky. >>> one of the state ballot items has to do with genetic engineering with foot. opponents say the foods are fda approved and safe. >> genetically modified foods are no different than any type of crop and that's why they don't require labeling today. >> we believe they're problematic, links to allergies and other effects showing up in studies and environmental problems. >> reporter: latest polls show it is favored by 2 to 1. >>> we told you there was
. but the achilles heel he has is president obama's record. >> joe biden arrived later this morning. he got advice from president obama last night who told abc world news that joe biden simply needs to be himself. >> joe just needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and but his ideas are the wrong ones. >>> there are more signs meanwhile that last week's debate has turned this race upside down. owl poll among likely voters say the romney ticket went from a one-point deficit to a large legaled. take a look at this. among independent voters there was a huge shift away from the president that is a big concern for him this close to the election. the other thing to consider tonight the moderator. these are the four moderators for this series of debates. jim laier did the debate. many people say he lost control of the debate. it upped the pressure on martha she is the moderator tonight. >> doug lousader in washington, thank you. >> now to the attack on our consulate in libya. yesterday an intense day on capitol hill lawmakers trying to get to the bottom of what happened. there have been many questio
sector jobs. it is important to know how we got here president obama and joe biden are laying out in order to move us forward. for those 5 million people who had jobs in the private sector that is progress. >> michelle foreign policy. he said about the benghazi attack quote we are not told they wanted more security there. at congressional hearings this week charlene lamb and eric nordstrom confirmed there were requests for more security. are you surprised biden's statement? >> there are 100 explanations we have gotten from them. isn't that stunning compared to what we have seen in the last four weeks. it is another reason why they are offering alternative on foreign policy american strengths and values. >> how dowdy fend vice president's comments on benghazi? >> i think the vice president made a very important point. there is an investigation underway right now so we can find out exactly what happened and if there were mistakes made. we shouldn't politicize the issue we should wait until it comes through. if people should be held accountable they should be. the president has been
. in this case maybe vice president biden can change the conversation which would be a win for obama if he could do that. >> who has more to lose going into this tonight? oo evening paul ryan does even though he is inexperienced. it is a huge opportunity to introduce himself. he needs to hold his own. he needs to be seen as somebody who can step in for romney. there's a bit of a stature gap he needs to close that. >> that could also work in his favor as we saw when dick cheney and john edwards were together. let's take a look at a clip of that from viewers remind you have that. >> first time i ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight. >> that gave a real distance between the two. you saw the generational gap there but also a gap in experience in a way. >> it was a bright move by dick cheney saying you are a new comer nobody knows who you are. vice president biden is saying there's a chance to say i know foreign policy you don't. paul ryan the expectations are low for him. as long as he stands on stage and holds his own he will be fine. >> take a look at another blunder here. we reme
asked who would pay more taxes in a second obama term, biden answered people making more than a million dollars or more. totally misleading. the associated press today reports that obama's proposed tax increase reaches individuals making more than $200,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000 a year. and number three, there was biden's defense of the hhs contraception mandate. >> no religious institution, catholic or otherwise, including catholic social services, georgetown hospital, mercy hospital, any hospital, none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. that is a fact. >> laura: false. today the u.s. conference of catholic bishops rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs and sterilizations because their health insurance premium
writing, quote, mr. biden will be counseled on how to avoid mr. obama's mistakes and even correct them with a more aggressive prosecution of the republican ticket. it's a lot of pressure that could backfire. >> it's interesting going forward into this week, i think it puts pressure on joe biden maybe exactly what the obama team didn't want, which is biden to feel the pressure of having to do well, which maybe is not a good place for biden to be. >> let me bring in white house reporter for "the new york times" peter baker. peter, thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> what's your anticipation here? i think it's obvious what happened with the president debate puts a lot of pressure on joe biden to perform exceptionally but it puts pressure for different reasons on congressman ryan. >> absolutely. look, there's a momentum at this point for governor romney coming out of last week's debate. it stole the opportunity for the obama campaign to kind of cement what had been building into a modest lead. so, you know, people don't tend to vote on who the vice president is, b
. joe biden said that president obama's plan would save billions of dollars and extend the life of medicare until 2024, but who's right and who's wrong and who is stretching things further perhaps than they should? >> our tom foreman is here with a very quick fact check. >> hi, ashley. as i'm sure you know, medicare is the government health insurance program mostly for people over the age of 65. about 50 million americans rely on this program and this financial future over the long term doesn't look so good. the scary part is, though, that both campaigns say the other side's plans for dealing with that are just awful. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medicare to spend on obama care. all you seniors out there, have you been denied choices? they haven't put a credible solution on the table. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. this is their essential claim that my opponent will destroy medicare, but is that really true? let's take a look at some of the facts and i'll bring in tools and look at the white house plan to begin
rommy says. governor romney. >> nbc's first read says ryan said obama 14 times while biden said romney 26 times. based on those numbers, biden came out swinging certainly like governor romney did last week. what is your thought here? did congressman ryan miss an opportunity to come out and hit as romney did the week before? >> i think the take away number from that is the very few times that biden actually mentioned obama, simply because he doesn't have a record to run on. the way he was smirking and laughing, it was disrespectful to ryan and insulting to the pros he. if anyone was fast and loose with the truth it was joe biden claiming that they acted based on intelligence information by stating that the benghazi attack was the result of a video, and now even to this day saying they had no knowledge of requests for increased security at the embassy when we heard in security hearings on wednesday there were repeated requests by members of the defense department to have increased security. those requests for denied. they felt as though the taliban were itself inside the building. i thin
. >> did biden do enough to stem the bleeding and damage from president obama's lackluster first debate performance? did ryan help maintain the romney momentum? >> this is a classic case where both sides of the aisle people saw what they wanted to see. >> joining me now is brad woodhouse, communications director of the democrat national committee. thanks for joining us today. >> thanks, richard. >> the vice president is being hammered by people who say he was laughing inappropriately, very energetic certainly. smirking, interrupting frequently. let's play some of those moments for our viewers, first. >> under a romney administration, we will have credibility on this issue. >> vice president biden? >> it's incredible. >> thank heaven which have these sanctions in place. >> oh, god. >> it's been discredited by six other studies. over 100 criminal investigations. >> martha. >> go ahead. >> martha, look. >> here is some of what the republicans are saying about the vice president's performance last night. >> reminded me of al gore in 2000 walking over and standing by president bush sort of g
. and many do believe that vice president biden helped make up for president obama's lackluster performance last week. the first and only vice presidential debate sparked a few fireworks. >> it's been done a couple of times. >> never -- >> lower tax rates, increase growth. >> now, you're jack kennedy. >> reporter: vice president joe biden and republican challenger, paul ryan, delivered stark difference on domestic and foreign policy. >> we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. >> it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan went after president obama for his response to the u.s. consulate attack in libya. >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: while biden challenged ryan's proposed changes to medicare. >> you are jeopardizing the program. you're changing the program from a guaranteed benefit. >> rep
's joe biden's greatest weakness for tomorrow night? >> barack obama's record. joe biden has been on these big stages. it's my first time. but what he can't run from is president obama's record. they're just offering more of the same. >> if president obama is sweating tonight's debate, he's not showing it. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker. but his ideas are the wrong ones. >> mitt romney's debate performance last week re-energized his campaign, but our brand new swing state polls show it didn't change a lot of minds. 92% of voters in ohio and florida made up their minds before the debate. 91% in virginia. overall, the dial did move slightly in romney's favor in florida and virginia, the race is virtually tied. but president obama leads ohio by six points in the nbc news "wall street journal" maris poll. joining me to talk about all of it, e.j.dion and dana milbank. gentlemen, good morning. remember the old commercial never let them see you sweat? dana, how much pressure is joe biden under tonight? >> he's been at this an awfull
the bar is much higher for joe biden. i think that's because president obama set it that way because of his pathetic performance. in the words of joe biden himself, steve, tonight is a big bleeping deal. so he has to come out of the gate. the problem is, he has a really weak script. while i don't think he's going to have any foot in mouth foibles like he typically does because the stakes are so high and campaign aides have probably cautioned him against that, i think the gaffe tonight is going to be the weak script that the obama-biden team had over the last four years because any time he tries bring up his record, i think paul ryan, who is so knowledgeable, is going to pounce. again, juan brought up that visual of young versus old and i think joe biden is just going to look like an old washington fixture with this young gun who actually has fresh ideas. i think he'll espouse that same romney template for debating. >> steve: juan, the administration really has given paul ryan something to whack joe biden in the head with and that is while there is this investigation going on on capit
was talking to the campaigns, if they get one thing out of biden tonight, the obama campaign, that is to make the base of the democratic party feel better tonight, that he gets a little aggressive, that he goes after some core issues like abortion, like contraception to make the base feel better. on the ryan side, they know they sort of have in a weird way they have outsized expectations from their own base. the base of the republican party doesn't respect joe biden so they expect ryan to just destroy him. what they want out of this is simply perhaps to get into a very in the weeds debate, make it feel issuey, maybe even make it seem a little heavy on washington speak or congress speak because that sort of will blunt anything, sort of prevent there to be a big fight, prevent biden from able to get -- score any big victory or anything like that. >> chris, romney has doubled down on his claim that we do have health care for the uninsured, the emergency room. he told the columbus dispatch, we don't have people that become ill who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. i guess
obama and vice president biden. we have the greatest surrogate team, and they're on the ground in those places where there are real people with real issues and real problems, and they're talking about the things that the president talks about, jobs and the economy, health care, education, energy, and tax reform. those are the president's themes. he's never walked away from any of those issues, and it's easier, i think quite frankly for mitt romney to have multiple positions on the same issue because he has no plans. he has no ideas. he has no proposals. he's not ready for prime time. >> okay. we've got a month to go. please spread the word among the surrogates you mentioned we are welcoming them here on "hardball," not to be afraid of me. i can be dealt with. i'm not the worst guy in the world. i will hit them on the points but they'll have a welcome way gone here if they want to come on and make the points. you're very good at it. howard, jack welch was here friday, he did all right. >> i would say it doesn't feel -- i get what the mayor is saying but it doesn't quite feel wlik the cho
, but david plouffe, the obama strategist, wrote in his book part of the reason obama picked biden was because he was impressed with his debate performance. he's a 40-year veteran, and he's going to be a capable debater. when joe biden was debating in '87 and '88 when he ran for president the first time, paul ryan was in high school. so there's going to be, i think, a fascinating age gap there on that stage. joe biden is not somebody that's going to come out there and sort of stumble around. it's possible he could commit a gaffe, but the ryan folks that i talked to are getting ready for, you know, the chairman of the foreign relations committee, not the gaffe-prone sort of lampooned joe biden. >> do you think they might take a stick at him and taunt him? even little ryan doing that, like how is neil kinnock doing, speaking of the '87 race? your thoughts, joan? can you gig him? >> i doubt it. that's a little dangerous. the vice president's gaffes when he makes them tends to come before really friendly crowds where he gets excited and -- they don't come on the debating stage. he's got great mast
, because this is -- this is an important one that barack obama, he voted for in '05. senator biden, you would remember that, in that energy plan that obama voted for, that's what gave those oil companies those big tax breaks. your running mate voted for that. you know what i had to do in the state of alaska. i had to take on those oil companies and tell them, "no," you know, any of the greed there that has been kind of instrumental, i guess, in their mode of operation, that wasn't going to happen in my state. at that's why tillerson exxon and mulva at conocophillips, bless their hearts, they're doing what they need to do, as corporate ceos, but they're not my biggest fans, because what i had to do up there in alaska was to break up a monopoly up there and say, you know, the people are going to come first and we're going to make sure that we have value given to the people of alaska with those resources. and those huge tax breaks aren't coming to the big multinational corporations anymore, not when it adversely affects the people who live in a state and, in this case, in a country who sho
you expect? >> i think what you just said, what joe biden had going for him when barack obama went into the debate expectations were huge he was going to mop the floor with romney. joe biden does not have a high expectations problem. people think of him as the gaffe guy. i think that underestimates joe biden. what paul ryan said is true he he has been doing this for 40 years and he will be on message. he has something else, is too. barack obama felt con strained to go after mitt romney with some of the lines, 47%, bain capital. he was going to look presidential. joe biden is going to throw everything and the kitchen sink at paul ryan and paul ryan's job has to be to not only meet that and turn it but also continue to do the sort of positive message that romney did in his debate. >> chris: there is the perception that bide season a loose cannon and a gaffe machine and i asked paul ryan about this last week and he said not in the highly visible highly structured events. he is disciplined and has been studying all of his debates. what do you expect from the vice president? >> i think
